I don't think I'll get another Vizio, although the M60 had a great picture while it lasted and the new PX series looks awesome. Not interested in a TV that only lasts 4 years.
I'm sort of in the same boat. I have been happy with my M-series overall, and it still works, but constant issues with the intermittent black screen at 4K or 120hz, that the PQX has continued weirdness with differing HDMI port functions, and that it generally seems to lack any forward looking functionality (ALLM, eARC, etc) means I will probably get a 65" OLED vs a 75" Vizio. The image quality, the most important of all traits, is great, but everything around the edges gives me pause about the Vizio brand.
